Our tours: Westminster – City of Power and Glory

The City of Westminster is home to royal palaces, the national church of Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, Downing Street, monuments to famous Britons (and others), Royal Parks and much more.

Join DON BROWN on this classic ‘walk’. We will start in the dead centre of London at Trafalgar Square, ‘stroll’ down Whitehall to see the Prime Minster’s home at 10 Downing Street, the Household Cavalry guarding the entrance to Horseguards, and the Cenotaph. In Parliament Square we’ll take in the Victorian gothic Palace of Westminster and discuss the differences between the Commons and the Lords.

Nodding to Churchill, Mandela, Gandhi and Fawcett, we will admire the medieval Gothic of Westminster Abbey – the site of every English coronation since 1066, and then make our way through beautifully preserved 18th century streets to St James’s Park.

Then a quick jog down the royal processional route of The Mall, (calling in to see Henry VIII’s palace and one of the sites where ‘The Crown’ was filmed) to end up at HM the Queen’s principal London residence – Buckingham Palace.

This is the classic London walk – enhanced by being online as we can look inside the palaces and parliament, and even behind the famous door at 10 Downing Street.
